KAPPA DELTA CHI SORORITY INC. IS HEART-BROKEN TO ANNOUNCE THE PASSING OF OUR EPSILON SISTER CHARMAINE BAILEY
 

Dallas, Texas (May 11, 2017) – Kappa Delta Chi Sorority Inc. is mourning the passing of Epsilon Chapter Alumna sister Charmaine Bailey, 34, who passed suddenly on May 9, 2017. Charmaine was born on December 26, 1982, and graduated from the University of Texas at Arlington in 2001 with a Bachelor of Social Work. While attending, she was part of the Kappa Delta Chi’s Epsilon Chapter’s Tau Class that initiated in 2003. She most recently worked as an Administrative Assistant in the Department of Nurse Family Partnership at Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas.

Charmaine recently adopted Lila, a beautiful dog from a shelter and is survived by her mother and father. Charmaine's memorial service will be on Sunday, May 21 at 2 pm at the Byrum Funeral Home in Lancaster TX. She will be inducted into Kappa Delta Chi's Omega Chapter at our National Conference in Orlando, Florida in July.

The following words are from a few of her KDChi Epsilon Alumnae sisters, who wanted to share special memories of their sister and dear friend. 

“Charmaine was the sweetest, most caring person anyone could ever ask for. Anything you ever needed she was there for you. She would drop everything to come help a Sister in need. She had a true heart of gold. Our chapter has definitely lost an Angel and a Sister that withheld our values to the highest standards daily.” ~ Tina Wilson.



“I am completely devastated by the loss of such a beautiful and caring sister. She was the very first person I met from her rush class, and she had so many questions and was so excited about KDChi. From that first meeting, I knew she was special. She was extremely soft spoken but had the loudest and most infectious laugh I've ever heard. We would purposely do silly things to make her laugh just to hear it because it could brighten up the whole room! She was also very extremely caring and thoughtful. In 2003 I was experiencing some financial difficulties. There were times that I had to miss events because I couldn't afford it, but Ch
armaine would quietly pay my way or purchase my meal if we went out to eat. She will be truly missed but will live on in the hearts of all of the sisters she touched!” ~ Tasha Harris

“I was thinking of words describe such an amazing woman and the song Humble and Kind by Tim McGraw came on.  It couldn't have been more perfect. Charmaine was very humble and one of the kindest and sweetest people I've ever met. Her smile was infectious and it didn't matter if you hadn't seen each other in years or months, it was like you saw her yesterday. She made you laugh and smile and even accompanied you on the dance floor. My last memory with her was dancing with her at Sherlock's, not caring about anything else, just having a good time." ~Jenny Montes Rodriguez



“Charmaine was a kind and beautiful spirit. One of a kind. She was so full of life and could light up a room just by walking into it.  She and I were roommates for two years, and her kindness and positivity were things that were just a part of her.  She had compassion for people and animals alike. She will be missed by so many.” ~ Erica Santos

"Charmaine was such a lovingsoul; with a warm smile, cheerful heart, and sweet spirit that drew people near her.  Her legacy of love, kindness, friendship, and joy will always be remembered and treasured.  She was a blessed soul." ~ Rachel Toodle 

“From the moment I met her, she was full of life. Her smile could just warm up a room. Charmaine always made you feel welcomed and loved. She was fearless and always trying new things. Charmaine was always up for an adventure. She loved you with all of your flaws. Charmaine, you will be dearly missed.” ~Mariana Gomez
